All Aboard the Crazy Train!

After our first and last good night of aurora viewing, we had to be up early enough to drop people and luggage off at the train station, return the rental cars to the airport, and get back to the station before the train left at 8:30 am. We were all ready with plenty of time to not have to rush, even though I'm sure everyone had the same nagging …

Our first boring day

Our morning in Alyeska was fun, locals had set up a mini market and Terry ate a reindeer hot dog,,which he said was delicious. We went on the cable car to the top of the mountain. The average winter snow fall is around 3 meters. They use ammunition to safely cause continual avalanches so that skiers are never in danger. One slope is very steep and …

We arrived back to Anchorage where Fur Rondy was in full display.

David Fobes met us at Humpy's for our first burger of the trip, and we wandered to 4th Avenue to join in the festivities. The first event were the Outhouse races. They blocked off the street, dumped in some thick snow, and the Outhouse teams were comprised of a homemade …

Started our day at 3:30 AM after a brief 4 hours of sleep. (I was so excited for the trip I don't even know how I got any sleep at all!) We're schlepping 4 suitcases and 3 backpacks, one especially for camera equipment. Sorry to say, my bags weigh 65 and 52 pounds. Hoping that the hand and toe warmers we use on the trip will lighten those bags and …

Arriving in Fairbanks we got ourselves in a little B+B for the night and wandered around the corner for some fresh Alaskan salmon and a couple of bottles of the local brew. Got asked for ID before being served alcohol which was a bit of a novelty for a 43 year old. Apparently they need to check your driving licence as well as it may have a court …

    Room is comfortable and everyone is extremely friendly. Special kudos to the omelette chef. Nice conversation from someone that appears to love her job and the people she's cooking for. Marriott does not fail me!

    Historical Traveler Reviews Anchorage Marriott Downtown

    Poor management, misleading reservation information

    from

    I booked 3 rooms for my family at this hotel on April 3, 2006 for a stay from June 2 til June 4, 2006. At the time I booked, the Marriott reservations website indicated that the only rooms available were at the concierge level. The rate was $279 per night per room. Upon check-in we were told at the front desk that we would have 2 rooms on 1 floor and 1 room on the next floor (19 & 20 as I recall.) Both floors were considered the concierge level. As such, they were to provide access to the concierge lounge, which was to serve light breakfast and snacks in the early evening. The front desk advised us upon check-in that the concierge lounge was open and that we should feel free to use our card key to access it at any time. When we arrived in our rooms and unpacked, we went to the concierge lounge, only to find it locked. We asked a staff member who happened to be in the hallway outside when it would open, and after calling downstairs, the staff member told us it would open at 5:30 pm. We noted a plastic sign permanently mounted on the wall next to the door that indicated that the lounge was closed on weekends, but the staff member assured us that the sign was incorrect. At approximately 6:00, seeing that the lounge was still closed, we again called the front desk. The young lady there said it should be open and that she would check. When she returned to the phone, she said it would not be open on weekends. We then spoke with the front desk manager, the highest ranking management team member on site at the time, and were told that the concierge lounge was never open on weekends. He was sorry we were misled by the website and by the front desk at check-in, but there was nothing he would do about it. He finally offered a free in-rooom movie as compensation. After much negotiation, he agreed to discount the room rate to $259. When we checked out, the adjustment turned out to be only $10, to $269 per night. We felt cheated, since the only rooms that had been available to us when we reserved 2 months in advance were concierge floor rooms. The rate was the same $279 whether the concierge lounge was open or not. In Hyatt, Hilton, and other Marriott hotels when the concierge lounge is closed (usually when the hotel is very empty) breakfast certificates are offered. In this case, the hotel was full of busloads of cruise tour guests, and no breakfast certificates were given. As I checked out, I overheard another guest saying that although the concierge lounge was closed, they did appreciate the free breakfast they were given in the restaurant. Obviously, it depends on how loud you yell and who you yell at. We plan to return to Alaska, but will not stay at this hotel again.

    Great Hotel in a great spot

    from

    The hotel was great. Our room had a great view of the city. The lounge was next door to our room, so we could go to it at any time(great for watching Notre Dame and USC playing football). I loved it!!!!

    Horrible and Overpriced

    from

    DO NOT STAY HERE.

    Security

    from

    We stayed at this hotel on two nights during a trip we made to Alaska in 2000. After returning from one of our tours late in the evening we slept late and left for breakfast at about 11:00am the following day. On our return after about 1-1/2 hours, we discovered that both a video camera and a 35MM camera were missing from our room. It was determined that our room was entered with a hotel pass room key on three occasions while we were gone. The worst part was not the loss of the cameras but the pictures tape and film that were in the cameras. We lost what I feel were some great memories of Alaska. To this day, I can not understand why the Marriott hotel failed to question the employees on duty at this time and make every effort to recover our valuable memories. Yes, they did send to us some books in order to compensate for our loss but in my opinion, it failed to satisfy me.

    Great staff, great hotel

    from

    My husband and I just stayed 2 nights at the Anchorage Marriott and really loved this hotel. The staff was so nice and accommodating; everyone was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the indoor pool and jacuzzi tub. Our room was clean and very spacious, with a gorgeous view of the mountains in the distance. It's a good location, just a short walk from the shopping area and theaters, yet still away from a lot of traffic and noise. I would definately stay here again.

    Great Place to Stay!

    from

    I can't say enough good about this hotel. The staff were efficient and accommodating way past expectations. They upgraded our room (off-season). Sent bathrobes to our room. The pool is above average for inside hotel pools. The only downside is street parking can be a little tough to find. Location is pretty good - good restaurants within walking distance.

    Wonderful staff - clean and tidy facilities

    from

    I recently stayed at the Marriott Downtown in Anchorage for 9 days. During this time, my husband and I were very pleased with the services provided. For starters, the staff are the most pleasant friendly people around - and were very accommodating to our needs.

    We have stayed at the Marriott on three seperate occasions: August 2001, January 2002 and March 2003. The staff is courteous and helpful.

    The Ugly!

    from

    This was by far the worst hotel we stayed in during our entire Alaskan trip in July 2003. First, there was only one washer and one dryer for the entire hotel population. There were so many people waiting to use these facilities the night we were there, it was unreal! Secondly, there were no complimentary coffee machines in the rooms, nor was there complimentary coffee in the lobby. It was the only hotel we stayed in during our entire tour, that did not have complimentary coffee in the morning. I was, however, able to purchase a cup in a styrofoam cup in the lobby for a mere $1.50!!! It was by far, the biggest (and only) let down of our entire trip!
